Check out our free Halloween coloring pages for kids! Little learners from preschool through 2nd grade can have fun learning with free Halloween-themed activities from Khan Academy Kids.
Themes are a great way to engage learners, and what better way to capture attention than by trick, treat, and learning? Join the fun as we clear off the cobwebs and enter the spooktacular Halloween world of Khan Academy Kids.
“Thematic units are when a teacher uses a theme to teach across multiple classroom disciplines. In early childhood, this is a highly effective way to engage learners. Since the brain naturally looks for patterns and connections, we learn more effectively when learning topics are not segmented, but grouped together and based on our current knowledge (Moyer, 2016). Thematic units increase student motivation and academic achievement (Tuffelmire, 2017).” – Education World
